United AirlinesOn Wednesday afternoon, a flight of United Airlines had to be diverted to Tulsa International Airport.

 

Flight 1759 was travelling to Tampa from Denver. During this point of time, it turned around at Siloam Springs, as asserted by Flight Aware.

 

The pilots of the twin engine Airbus 320 had made a sharp turn over Arkansas since it wanted to head to Tulsa International Airport. The crew member told the ground controllers that it had shut down one of the engines of the airplane.

 

The plane was able to make a perfectly safe landing around 1.35 p.m.

 

One of the official spokespersons of United Airlines went on to add that the airline is planning to fly a separate airplane from Chicago. This alternative plane would pick up passengers and take them to their destination.

 

The plane had been carrying 138 passengers on board the flight, in addition to the crew members.

 

And, the spokesman was not able to state the reason that had actually led the plane to opt for an emergency landing and be diverted to Tulsa International Airport. He, however, said that there might have a kind of mechanical issue that might have forced the plane to make the emergency landing.
